Documents show that Dole also set up meetings between Trump's advisers and representatives from Taiwan, according to the Times.
“They’re very optimistic,” he told the Times, referencing Taiwanese officials. “They see a new president, a Republican, and they’d like to develop a closer relationship.”
Dole was paid $140,000 between May and October for his lobbying efforts and made contact with the Trump campaign before the election. He asked Trump aides to help a Taiwanese delegation attend the Republican National Convention, and Dole played a role in changing the Republican platform regarding policy toward China and Taiwan, per the Times.
The former senator set up a meeting between Taiwanese officials and Sen. Jeff Session (R-AL), now Trump's pick to lead the Justice Department, and he is currently trying to arrange a meeting with Reince Priebus, possibly for after the inauguration, the Times reported.
